  • Cast-iron pan


  • 3 eggs
  • 160 millilitres milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 85 grams (2/3 cup) all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil


  • Combine everything except for the butter and oil into a large measuring jug. Use a stick blender to blend until it makes a silky smooth batter.
  • Let the batter rest in the fridge for a minimum of 10 minutes, preferably 20.
  • While the batter is resting, put a 9 inch cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 450. If you don't have a cast iron, any oven-safe dish will work.
  • When the batter has rested and the oven and pan are hot, remove the pan from the oven.
  • Add the oil and butter to the pan and give it a swirl till the butter melts.
  • Pour the batter into the hot skillet, and get it back in the oven to bake for 20 minutes and watch that pancake rise.
